It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our father Jim Brown. Jim had an amazing spirit and was a great supporter of the Abbotsford Community.

Jim was predeceased by his loving wife, Sharon Brown (nee: Poyntz-1999); his mother, Ann Barnard (nee; Platnick-2008); brother, Randy Barnard (Aug. 2012); father, James Albert Brown (Nov. 2012). Jim is survived by his sisters, Alva Popowich ( Halifax), Lois Kearney ( Winnipeg), Shirley Hyslop ( Saltair) and Heather Grant (Kenora); his five children, Kevin Brown of Aldergrove (Brenda), James D.J. Brown of Coquitlam, Traci de Pape of Prince George (Jeff), Tania de Pape of Langley (Glenn); Lynn MacKinnon of Maple Ridge (Mike); his 9 grandchildren; one great grandchild, who all lovingly referred to him as “Grumpy”; many nieces and nephews, along with numerous friends and extended family. Jim was loved by all who met him and he will leave a huge void in our lives. His memories, smile and humor will linger on. We love you! By request immediate cremation has taken place.

Whenever I saw Jim "Dad" he was always friendly, smiling and loved to engage in a good conversation. He always had his beloved poodle with him and you just knew he treated his dog like gold. His gentleness and kind spirit will be sadly missed. We know he will be smiling with amusement as he watches us manoeuvre through life's hiccups. Farewell and rest in peace Jim "Dad" Love and big hugs, Jacquie
